The OGC Web Services Context Document (OWS Context) describes the use cases, requirements and conceptual model for the OWS Context encoding standard.
The OGC Web Services Context Document allows a set of configured information resources (service set) to be passed between applications primarily as a collection of services and supports in-line content as well (e.g. Geography Markup Language (GML)).
The goal is to support use cases such as the distribution of search results, the exchange of a set of resources such as OGC Web Feature Service (WFS), Web Map Service (WMS), Web Map Tile Service (WMTS), Web Coverage Service (WCS) and others in a ‘common operating picture’. Additionally OWS Context can deliver a set of configured processing services (Web Processing Service (WPS)) parameters to allow the processing to be reproduced on different nodes.
The standard provides a core model, which is extended and encoded as defined in extensions to this standard. A ‘context document’ specifies a fully configured service set which can be exchanged (with a consistent interpretation) among clients supporting the standard.
